so. and i think john brennan in his time at the white house, and presuming he moves over to the central intelligence agency, i think he philosophically has that point of view. there are some limits in terms of classification, but i believe the secrecy surrounding drones particularly with respect to pakistan works with to our advantage. i hope the administration finds ways to be more transparent going forward. this is a full plate for john kerry. we have known crisis dealing with syria. can we have a meaningful conversation with iran. he'll be at the forefront of creating a sustainable relationship and a working relationship with new leadership in china. he has been very involved over the years but only in pakistan issues afghanistan issues. he'll work the diplomat iic aspect of the war and he has been involved in the crisis of sudan. if the list wasn't long enough there is the emerging challenge in mali and across and of courseofcourse britain's role, he'll be looking at the concerns of the united states about britain turning inward as opposed to being a strong voice within the

mentioned in my opening remarks that john brennan came here to explain that there is a legal frame work. >> right. >> i also mentioned that the administration, i think probably led by him, is developing a counterterrorism play book, which is going to be more specific about what this frame work is. i'm aware, and i think we're all aware that some in congress want to see the legal meme randoms prepared by the justice department explaning the policy around targeting american citizens abroad. it's a careful policy, but nonetheless, explaning it. congressments to see the memos. it's in a classified setting that the moment -- memos should be released, and they should be able to review them. there needs a public discussion of not all the details, not the targeting set, but of the general subject, and so i think i'm pleased you raised it, the kind of thing the wilson center does. we want to have conversations around tough security issues, and this is a -- i appreciate the fact that you, at the wilson center, raised the question. it was not a planted question. thank you very much.
